My name is Ranee, I am a registered nurse from country Victoria, Australia. My affiliation with Lombok is via several Indonesian friends I have made during my retreats to the beautiful island of Gili Air who are amongst those impacted, and some, still not found......
We are asking for immediate help for the local people who have lost their homes and their loved ones and are living in terror of a tsunami and further quakes and shocks. This is a state of emergency and they need basics like food and water, shelter and medical supplies.
Lombok has recently been hit with a number of catastrophic earthquakes with a magnitude > 6.9 effecting many towns and rural communities North of Lombok. Hundreds of homes and villages have been destroyed leaving people homeless, with no food, water or shelter. Thousands of people have lost their loved ones and people are in despair. Villages have limited supplies, hospitals have been destroyed and daily necessaries are unavailable. Without food, water, shelter, clothing and medicine more lives are being lost.
I have friends that have been affected by the earthquake. Friends I met and have maintained since holidaying on Gili Air at the Sunrise resort over 4 years ago. They have lost their homes, their families and been left with nothing. They are the most genuine and caring souls and are in great need of help! Despite their own losses and fragility, some are grouping together, forming teams and traveling daily to affected areas with food and water supplies. They need money to do this.
"If you don't mind, help me and team to get funds to help earthquake's victim" Usman 6.8.18
"I went there yesterday with my brother and friends to bring some logistic but the same earthquake with 6.2 M back again!! police stop us and ask my team to evacuate ourselves!! we are shocked." Anam 6.8.18
Any monetary donations will be transferred immediately to those on the ground who are purchasing and distributing the desperately needed necessities for people to survive. Food and water will be purchased and immediately distributed.
People are frightened, desperate, starving and feel desolate and alone. Just the thought of others wanting to assist them helps give them the courage to continue fighting for survival in absolutely terrible circumstances.
"Thank you for your caring and kindness, your moral support empowers us..." Usman 7.8.18
Please help, lets us pull together and take action to assist those suffering in this time of need, any donation no matter how small is greatly appreciated; a little goes a long way.
